In addition to the wonderful reading themes, these shows engage students with important positive messages including self-esteem, anti-bullying, safety, basic visualization & goal setting techniques for improved results, along with most customized themes. A particular book theme can be incorporated into the reading program, otherwise I use standard classics for grades attending. Likewise, “Take PRIDE!” Character education show is customized for grades attending.
Remember, students learn much more effectively through visual presentations, such as these. They really relate to the presentations’ fun, participatory format, thus ensuring the positive, educational messages are absorbed.
